History

In 1930, 112 ran basically along the same route as now from Huntington to Worthington. At Worthington, it headed east along modern 143, then north to it’s current route east of Cummington. It stayed with the current route to Lithia, then headed north to modern MA 116 at Spruce Corner, then west back to its current route (again). It then stayed along its current route to end at Rt 2 near Shelburne Falls.

Between 1936 and 1939, 112 was extended north to the Vermont border via what had previously been MA 56. Also, the section from Worthington Corners to Cummington was rerouted to its modern route. Finally, between 1966 and 1969, MA 112 was rerouted to its current route from Lithia to Goshen, then north to Buckland.
